「三分鐘學會成功的八個祕訣」- Secrets of success in 8 words, 3 minutes


This is really a two-hour presentation I give to high school students, cut down to three minutes. And it all started one day on a plane on my way to TED seven years ago. And in the seat next to me was a high school student, a teenager, and she came from a really poor family. And she wanted to make something of her life, and she asked me a simple little question. She said, "What leads to success?" And I felt really badly, because I couldn't give her a good answer. So I get off the plane, and I come to TED, and I think, "Jeez, I'm in the middle of a room of successful people. So why don't I ask them what helped them succeed, and pass it on to kids?" So here we are, seven years, 500 interviews later, and I'm gonna tell you what really leads to success and makes TED-sters tick.

And the first thing is Passion. Freeman Thomas says, "I'm driven by my passion." TED-sters do it for love; they don't do it for money.
第一件事是「熱情」。Freeman Thomas(知名汽車設計師)說:「我受熱情所驅使。」TED大師們為了愛好而為之;他們不為金錢而做。

Carol Coletta says, "I would pay someone to do what I do." The interesting thing is if you do it for love, the money comes anyway.
Carol Coletta(知名都市設計師)說:「我願意付錢請某人做我所做的事。」有趣的是,如果你為了愛好而做,金錢不請自來。

Work. Rupert Murdoch said to me, "It's all hard work. Nothing comes easily, but I have a lot of fun." Did he say fun? Rupert? Yes! TED-sters do have fun working, and they work hard. I figured they are not workaholics. They are workafrolics.

Good! Alex Garden says, "To be successful, put your nose down in something and get damn good at it." There's no magic. It's practice, practice, practice.
精通!Alex Garden(電玩大師)說:「要成功,專心致力於某件事然後精通它。」沒有魔法。就是練習、練習、再練習。

And it's Focus. Norman Jewison said to me, "I think it all has to do with focusing yourself on one thing."
然後是「專注」。Norman Jewison(知名電影人)對我說:「我認為這全都和將你自己專注於一件事情上有關。」

And Push! David Gallo says, "Push yourself. Physically, mentally, you've gotta push, push, push." You gotta push through shyness and self-doubt. Goldie Hawn says, "I always had self-doubts. I wasn't good enough; I wasn't smart enough. I didn't think I'd make it."
還有「衝勁」!David Gallo(劇場設計師)說:「督促你自己。身體上、心理上,你得推進、推進、再推進。」你得衝過羞怯和自我懷疑。歌蒂韓(奧斯卡女星)說:「我總是自我懷疑。我不夠好;我不夠聰明。我不認為我做得到。」

Now it's not always easy to push yourself, and that's why they invented mothers. Frank Gehry, Frank Gehry said to me, "My mother pushed me."
要逼迫你自己不總是那麼簡單,那就是為何上帝創造了「母親」。Frank Gehry(大建築師),Frank Gehry跟我說:「我的母親督促著我前進。」

Serve! Sherwin Nuland says, "It was a privilege to serve as a doctor." Now a lot of kids tell me they wanna be millionaires. And the first thing I say to them is: "Ok. Well, you can't serve yourself. You gotta serve others something of value because that's the way people really get rich."
「服務」!Sherwin Nuland(醫生作家)說:「身為醫生服務是個殊榮。」現在很多孩子們告訴我他們想成為百萬富翁。而我告訴他們的第一件事情是:「好的。不過呢,你不能服務你自己。你得提供別人有價值的東西,因為那是人們真正致富的方法。」

Idea! TED-ster Bill Gates says, "I had an idea: founding the first micro-computer software company." I'd say it was a pretty good idea. And there's no magic to creativity in coming up with ideas. It's just doing some very simple things. And I give lots of evidence.

Persist! Joe Kraus says, "Persistence is the number one reason for our success." You gotta persist through failure. You gotta persist through crap, which of course means "Criticism, Rejection, Assholes and Pressure."
「堅持」!Joe Kraus(網站大亨)說:「堅持是我們成功的首要原因。」你得撐過失敗。你得撐過狗屁倒灶的事,那當然意味著「批評(C)、拒絕(R)、渾球(A)和壓力(P)。」

So, the big...the answer to this question is simple: Pay 4,000 bucks and come to TED. Or failing that, do the eight things, and trust me, these are the big eight things that lead to success.

Thank you TED-sters for all your interviews!
